Hepatica!!!!
Are you referring to #4? I'm confident that is rue anemone. Here are some hepatica:

The dark leaves packed in tightly behind the blossom are a distinguishing characteristic of hepatica, not present on the anemone.


Nicely done, sir.
Thank you very much.

Beautiful series, Jim!
Thanks, Dossy.

Beautiful work, Jim.

I've not been able to prowl the woods for the past couple of weeks, but at least I can enjoy your images -- Thank You

Thanks, Bob. Sorry to hear that you are incapacitated, but I trust you'll be out and about soon. I've missed your wildflower photos.

Fine series Jim. I like the Wood Anemone. I haven't found them around here.
Thanks, Mike. My wife has to re-identify them for me annually :redface:.

Wonderful set!

I especially like the Rue Anenome!
Thanks, Karen. There were lots of those where I was walking today.
